We only accept referrals from GP’s and secondary care (i.e. gynaecology and breast cancer services). For management of menopause symptoms we recommend seeing your GP in the first instance or speak to your practice nurse.

If you are thinking about having a vasectomy you can now refer yourself for this, you don’t need to be referred by your doctor. The first step is to ring 01495 765065 and choose option 3, during office hours.

You will be asked about medication, weight, allergies and scrotal lumps/previous surgery. If your medical history is suitable, you can be added to the waiting list and contacted once an appointment becomes available.

All the pre op information will be sent to you by email, including a short video clip. This is available to watch here if you wish: watch this DVD. It takes about 10 minutes to watch.
